Subject: RE: Origins: 'Where Have All the Flowers Gone?'
I sing this song quite frequently when I perform. Kind of the Kingston Trio version which is what most casual folk music listeners like and are familiar with.
This is the kind of song that the general audience doesn't care much about origins. Just that people like the song, like to sing along with it, and it brings back memories of when folk music was actually popular to the masses. Good reasons to sing it.
